Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★

Very rough around the edges but sticks to its guns in terms of obvious if effectual aims regarding the modern day patriarchal scourge that continues to live and die by similarly bullshit notions of warped, male-imposed propriety and stigma. Dark horse Cassie as played by Mulligan's a showstopper but this erratically touches certain/necessary bases with only a banger of an endgame in mind because revealing exposition remains key in understanding the truth behind her actions despite how arbitrary/shoehorned in certain elements (e.g. Molina's epiphany) feel.
